Volunteer Programs

Whether it's helping to recover from a natural disaster, or to pair private employers with volunteer opportunities in the community, Volunteer Polk can coordinate your needs through its programs.

Disaster Volunteers and Donations Coordination

Volunteers can play a key role in the recovery from a natural disaster. Volunteer Polk, at the direction of Polk County Emergency Management, becomes the clearing house for volunteers in times of disaster. This department registers all volunteers and conducts background check to make sure the volunteers have all the training, certifications and credentials they need to do their job.

Business & Corporate Citizenship

Volunteer Polk can connect businesses that want to make a difference in the community through employee volunteering and social responsibility projects. This department also accepts donations of surplus goods from businesses. 

Whether it's unwanted product samples, surplus furniture, or unwanted office supplies and equipment, Volunteer Polk can pair these items with other agencies who serve those in need.
